A Smile For No Reason

I wake up,

stretch like a lazy cat in my bed,

and welcome my day with a smile for no reason.

 

I brush my teeth,

checkout myself in the mirror,

and flatter myself with a smile for no reason.

 

I read the newspaper,

say thanks to mom for the bowl of cereal.

She ruffles my hair with a smile for no reason.

 

I reach my office,

open the door to Mrs. frosty.

Though she looks obliged but she smiles for no reason.

 

He croons hello,

Mr Hotiie, the Analyst.

I laugh out loud and keep a daylong smile for no reason.

 

I pitch my work

to my boss in an hour.

He trashes it all with an empathetic smile and a reason.

 

I leave from work.

The kid in the next car

makes my day with an innocent smile for no reason.

 

I meet my friends

at a place not far.

We share a drink and reasons to smile for no reason.

 

I head home tired,

have food with my family.

My brother winks and gives his knowing smile for no reason.

 

Then I crawl to my bed,

crash and drift to sleep,

And what remains in my dreams is a smile for no reason.

 

With Love
